Switch Between Your Blogger And Google+ Profiles

Long ago, when Blogger blog owners were given the option to associate their Blogger account with Google+, some would try out their new identities - then change their minds.

Some blog owners would upgrade to a dynamic, exciting Google+ profile - then regret their decision. Not everybody appreciated the features offered by Google+, as applied to a Blogger blog.

Blogger gave us the ability to revert to a Blogger profile - within 30 days. This did not help people who took over 30 days to observe problems.

Recently, Blogger Engineering improved our ability to choose a Blogger or Google+ profile, for our Blogger accounts.

You can choose either your Blogger or Google+ profile, as desired.


You can select either a Blogger or Google+ profile, when it's convenient.



You use the "Edit User Settings" wizard, to select your Blogger or Google+ profile - when you have both profiles associated with your Blogger account.

Use the dashboard menu - or bookmark a shortcut.

Just start from the dashboard home page, and the "gear" icon menu. Or you can bookmark the wizard.


Start from the dashboard home page.




Click on the "gear" icon.




Then click on "Edit User Settings".




That gives you the "Edit User Settings" wizard.




Now, you can select either a Blogger or Google+ profile, as convenient.



If your Blogger account has both a Blogger and Google+ profile, you can simply select one or the other, as convenient. Some Blogger features are based on the profile used by the blog owner, so consider the selection carefully - but the selection is at least available.



#Blogger blog owners, who have Blogger accounts associated with both Blogger and Google+ profiles, can now switch between one and the other, as convenient. Consider the change, carefully - but make the change, when necessary.

Dude, hit me with a comment!

Question: If I switch to my Google + profile, what happens to all my Blogger followers? And what happens to all the blogs I have in my blogger reading list?
